Regional job networking groups: This winter, EBN is launching 17 regional job search networking groups for people 50+, sponsored by the Massachusetts Councils on Aging, with support from the Executive Office of Elder Affairs and AARP Massachusetts.

Anyone feeling challenged by ageism, stuck in their job search, uncomfortable with networking, not familiar with LinkedIn or in need of resume help will find others facing the same challenges and willing to share their connections and experience. 

Biweekly meetings are facilitated by an experienced career coach. Find a complete list of locations, dates and times here. Register in advance here.
